Warm greetings and blessings to you, dear Friend!
May you be filled with lovingkindness.
May you be safe and protected from all inner and outer dangers.
May you be well in body and mind.
May you be at ease and happy.
I admit it.
I’m an Abraham Hicks junkie.
Whenever I can, I listen to Esther Hicks channeling Abraham’s wisdom.
Doing so is one of the best things I know of to help me re-member the truth of every one of us:
that we ARE sparks of God, unique expressions of Love made manifest in physical form.
(New to Abraham? Visit http://www.abraham-hicks.com/lawofattractionsource/index.php
There are also numerous video clips on youtube.)
What’s really rocking my world – and filling me with great appreciation –
is that I am finding Abraham’s wisdom influencing more and more of the people in my life.
Take my friend Mendhi Audlin, for instance. Mendhi is a speaker, coach and author.
In her book “What If It All Goes Right?”, Mendhi talks about “WHAT IF UPPING” –
asking “what if” questions in a way that expands possibilities and inspires innovation.
The more I read of Mendhi’s book, the better I felt…
and, as Abraham would say, it’s ALL about feeling GOOD.
(Something I’m eager to experience is forming a “What If” group,
in which each person involved identifies a challenge or idea,
notices how they mentally approach the idea or challenge,
and then opens up to possibilities beyond what they believe to be possible via ideas from everyone else in the group.
What if it were that easy?
What if the Big Lives we want to live are RIGHT HERE, RIGHT NOW,
and that all we have to do, as Abraham (and Mendhi) would say, is to let ourselves BELIEVE that we can have them?
And what if others in our lives would be happy to “WHAT IF UP” with us, for the good (and fun!) of all?
I say YES to finding out,
and I’m grateful to have another useful (and powerful) Small Step in my “tool belt”!
In honour of What If Upping, I offer you a link to my partner Jana Stanfield’s “affirmatune”, “Life’s Not A Struggle”:
And you can learn more about Mendhi’s book here:
How about YOU, dear Friend? What’s most resonating in YOU these days?
WHEREVER you are on your journey, I’d love to hear from you. Please e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org; we’re all in this together, and we have much to learn from each other.
